UP LIFTING

It's not your birthday. Or Christmas. But I got you a present.

A special one.

Savor this:


Oh, you're so welcome.

From time to time everyone needs a good laugh at someone else's expense. My gift to you.

•••

The who: Yours Truly
The year: 2001
The location: somewhere in Honolulu
The body weight: A good 20lbs more than now
The what-the-heck-is-she-doing: Powerlifting. Competitively. In front of a crowd. After a weigh-in. Not even kidding.
The why: It was fun

The proof that I am less interested in my dignity than my amusement.

Again, you're quite welcome. Enjoy your Thursday.

Love it. I called Norm over to look at it too. He was shocked. His words - "That's a lot of weight for her. She looks good there." See now you guys can talk powerlifting, I'm sure he would love it.

But it IS Abe Lincoln's, Charles Darwin's, and Janetta Robin's birthdays today. Happy freaking birthday, Abe, Charles, and Janetta. You're lucky. I will be revisiting this post on my birthday.

I remember these days. See this is Shorsha in her prime, people! Question: Do you know where other power lifter Diana is? Or how to get ahold of her? It'd be fun to catch up with "Diry Di!" Ah, Adam and his nicknames!

I did really enjoy that as I had NO idea you participated in such events...or used to! You never struck me as a beef-neck.
